THE NATHAN BOWLES TRIO, NOW A-TRAVELIN'!

posted May 20th, 2024

Arriving July 26 on Drag City, Are Possible is a spark-throwing, undulating fusion of styles spiraling from the Nathan Bowles Trio. Played (mainly) on banjo, upright bass and drums, these are songs made possible by the individual perspectives of virtuosic banjo player Nathan, double-bassist Casey Toll (Jake Xerxes Fussell, Mt. Moriah) and drummer Rex McMurry (CAVE) — working together in an easy-rolling manner, but one that contains an expansive, ass-shaking confabulation of ideas. Hear the first single off... (read more)

GHOSTED, GHOSTED, GONE!

posted May 10th, 2024

With Ghosted II out n’ about — unshackled from its phantom hull, phasing through the walls — Oren Ambarchi, Johan Berthling and Andreas Werliin deliver one more visual to play out their polyrhythmic skeletons. Summoned before us today is a new music video for the second track, “Två”, directed by Cédrick Eymenier, the trio’s longtime collaborator and soul-bound confidant.

“Två” opens with a portal of spiraling, metallic organs, cast in circles by Oren, above the muted bass harmonics of Johan and intermingling... (read more)
